NYT - All the Speculation That's Fit To Print

An irregular column highlighting trendlets in the NYT. It someone on your buddylist is doing it too, it must be a trend!

From Anna Bahney, "The Doctor Will See You and Your Party, Now," Sunday Styles, p.8, August 27, 2006:

"American women had about 1.5 million cosmetic surgery procedures in 2005, up 5 percent from 2004, according to data extrapolated from a mail-in survey of doctors conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Most went it alone, and there are no hard numbers on how many underwent surgery together. But doctors interviewed for this article had no difficulty citing examples of me-and-my-pal office visits, or of friends who went thru an operation together as a way of supporting each other."

What's On Your iPod? HAHAHAHAHAHA

For a good larf, march on down over to the starfucking feature of the iTunes store: Celebrity Playlists.

if you can set aside the WTF-ness of eardropping on celebr-iPods (now why do i want to know what Olympians listen to again?), the utter blandness of music contained therein and the incessant generalizations from personal tastes (aka "if you dont dance to this track, you must be dead!"), you can enjoy the, uh, commentary of the mediocr-itacracy. Bless the folks at iTunes for having the sadistic sensability to force celebraties to justify EVERY SINGLE SONG of their iMix. The commentaries have all the passion of an exhausted student cramming to complete the final essay in a SAT-type exam.

a few choice excerpts:

Ashlee Simpson on Bob Marley's Is This Love: "This is just a feel-good song that you just can't not love."

Sharon Stone on, what else, The Notorious B.I.G.: "For me, Biggie Smalls was the most talented rap musician/composer ever. That's it."

Jerry Bruckheimer on Eagles' Desperado: "Is there anything better than the lyrics to this song? Moving & emotional."

Kyria Sedgwick on The Verve Pipe: "I really like this one. I think I first heard it in a movie."

A special award goes to the unstoppably smug Stephen King: SK on The Inmates: "White boys can't sing soul? Think again homey."

From the New York Times:
“As they cooled down from their workouts, Mary Zobro and her husband, Romie, said they were conflicted, speaking of the respective strengths of Mr. Williams and Ms. Couric. ‘It's going to be a hard decision for me, choosing between Brian and Katie,’ said Mrs. Zobro, who is 72. ‘I guess, when that time comes, we'll know.’”

Indie labels are, wait, come back

from the NYTIMES today:
"Tony Brummel, the owner of the independent rock label Victory Records, says he is not interested in selling individual songs from his albums, though he may give them away to build buzz."

Emo, obviously, is the new prog. ("Dude, we make, like rock operas, not singles.")

Here's looking to more efforts by Victory to restrict fan access to individual tunes, by refusing to band separate tracks and making CDs that only play in their entirety.

There's No Such Thing As a Free Market in the Music Industry

In today's NYTimes, Jeff Leeds writes about the latest efforts of the Music Industry to thwart free enterprise. See "Labels Halt Downloads to Increase CD Sales." The Industry is toying with a provocative new anti-consumer strategem. In essence, the labels prohibit downloads of popular singles in the run up to an album release.

While this move likely will generate (justifiable) hue and cry from the free media crowd, the equally salient controversy revolves around the industry's patent efforts to manipulate consumer taste. Make no mistake - the industry is REFUSING to service a market demand for sales of singles (hard copy or download) to, uh, "encourage" folks to fork over moolah for the whole record.

This move recalls the industry's similar gambits in the past - gambits that ultimately fueled cynicism and sparked interest in, uh, alternative sources of music. In the late 1980s, the industry repeatedly deleted top 10 singles so that consumers who responded at the crescent of popularity (blame yourself, johnny come latelies) were forced to pay maximum price. If you wanted, say, a copy of "Push It" by Salt-n-pepa, you had to buy the whole $15 album.

Maybe I Should Be a Political Consultant

"After more than five years of allowing President Bush relatively free rein to set their course, Republicans in Congress are suddenly, if selectively, in rebellion, a mutiny all the more surprising since it centers on the party's signature issue of national security." Carl Hulse, "Suddenly, a Rebellion in the G.O.P. on a Signature Issue," New York Times, March 9, 2006.

With the Dems in cahoots with the GOP, who is available to bash the GOP as undermining the President on national security during war time?

Reason Why I'm Not a Political Consultant #48

What light of Republican dissent on the Dubai deal, Democrats supported President Bush on the transaction and demagogued GOP leaders as undermining the President Dubya in a time of war?
